Hey, Remember That Crane High School Chlamydia Epidemic?


Didn't happen. The Superintendent learned from a local physician that twenty kids had been "tested" for the disease but somehow heard that twenty kids had been "confirmed" to have the disease.


But mistake that might have been happily forgotten in a remote West Texas town isn't as easily erased on the worldwide web. "It was a misunderstanding but people go for—for lack of a better word—BS," Rumage said. "I was trying to inform our parents and somehow the media got a hold of it and blew it totally out of proportion."

The bad thing is that from now on, for the next hundred years, Crane will only be remembered for being full of chlamydia. Whatever people hear first, regardless of corrections that follow, they believe to be true.

Hmmm...wonder how this works with HIPAA regulations? Did small-town doctor simply alert the Superintendent to the testing? Were names mentioned? Any health-law experts out there that could comment?

As long as personal information was not exchanged, no problem as to HIPAA.

It is more fun trying to catch Chlamydia than actually catching it.
